    It

    What would you think a following it stands for?

    "Community isn't so much a place as it is a state of mind. You find it whenever folks ask how you're doing because they care and not because they are getting paid to inquire.

    Is it the first sentence especially it is a state of mind or because ... to inquire?
    I think it is the first senence.

    Thank you very much
